Yesterday things were looking pretty grim. I was completely exhausted and was having trouble even thinking straight. By the middle of the afternoon I had hit the 'wall' and it wasn't looking like there was anyway around it, over it or through it.

Shelley and I were at the local shopping centre around 3pm and decided on the spur of the moment to have a proper cafe meal. We decided on a tandoori chicken burger on turkish bread with a small serve of chips, a open turkish bread cajun chicken, cheese and spinach melt shared between us (1/2 of each). Then we had dessert - cheesecake and caramel mud cake with icecream - again shared.

We ate slowly, savouring every mouthful and thoroughly enjoyed every bite. It was divine. We left the cafe full and satisfied.

The physical and emotional change was amazing. We both felt alive, energised and ready to take on the world. We even went for a run/walk at about 5pm. Neither of us felt remotely hungry for the next 4 hours, and Shelley didn't eat anything else for the rest of the day while I had a small snack at about 9pm.

My CK log shows all my calories except for the re-feed meal which I am guessing was 1,000 calories taking my total to 2,286 for the day. This morning I had a 0.5kg spike which is completely acceptable. Last night I slept like a baby for the first time in weeks and this morning I feel fantastic.

I didn't just want a good feed, I needed it. It didn't trigger a binge and this morning in the gym I was unstoppable. It feels brilliant to feel alive again!!
